Easter Treats for Kids:
Special Easter Kids' Recipes!

With these Easter treats for kids, you get the best of both worlds. Why? Because while most Easter kids recipes are things that kids love to eat, they don't always allow for kids help out with the preparation. But these recipes do!

Each one of the fun Easter treats recipes here is simple --and fun-- enough to make that the kids will have a blast helping out. More than simple snacks, these recipes are also sort of Easter crafts for children, too!

I'm absolutely positive that you and your kiddos will be over-the-moon about making these recipes together. But I've also got lots of other fun ideas for treats to make with your kids right here at Easter Central, including:


Run-Away Rabbit Racecar Snack Cakes

Racecar Rabbits for Easter Treats for Kids
Of all my recipes for Easter treats for kids, this one is probably my favorite. Why? Because they're even more fun to put together than they are to eat! If your kids are old enough, they can do the whole thing themselves. Got younger ones? They'll have a blast helping out.

There's also no cooking involved... it's all about assembling and decorating these adorable little Rabbit Racecars.

The ingredients list below is more of a suggestion than a real requirement. Get creative with the elements of this Easter treat for kids, and have fun with it!

Ingredients (some or all of the following):
Swiss Roll Snack Cakes or Twinkies (for the car)
Marshmallow Bunny Peeps (the drivers!)
Gummy Life Savers or Sour Rings (wheels and steering wheels)
Mini sandwich cookies (wheels)
M&M's, Sprees, or Sweet Tarts (headlights)
Pez (license plates)
Halved gummy rings or cookies (seat back)
Chocolate or Vanilla Frosting (for the glue)

Instructions: 1. Get all your candies unwrapped and cover a flat surface with waxed paper to work on.

2. Place your frosting in a decorator's bag, or into a ziplock bag with just the very tip cut away so you can pipe out a small amount.

3. In the bottom of each bunny Peep, slice a small V so he'll sit up on the car without tipping over.

4. Using frosting as glue, stick the Peeps, wheels, seat backs, steering wheel, headlights, etc., where they should go on the car. Get creative!

5. Get lots of "little mechanics" to help put together these fun Easter treats for kids-- it's a lot of fun!



Easter Bunny Breakfast Biscuits

Easter Breakfast Bunnies for KidsThese adorable bunny biscuits make a wonderful Easter treat for kids, or a super cute addition to your Easter brunch! And they come together in about 6 milliseconds, and are a ton of fun to make.

Let the kids decorate them, them pop them in the oven and eat them warm. And get creative with the toppings! Here, I cover them with a bit of honey, but you can also think about rolling them in butter, then coating them with cinnamon and sugar, brushing them with maple syrup, sprinkling them with powdered sugar when they cool... you name it!

This Easter kids recipe serves 8.

Ingredients:
2 pkgs. (8 ct. each) Country Style Biscuits
16 dried raisins (bunny eyes)
8 dried cranberries (bunny noses)
Slivered Almonds, as needed (bunny whiskers)
1 tbsp. butter, melted
2 tbsp. honey, warmed

Instructions: 1. Preheat your oven to the temperature specified on your biscuits' packaging.

2. To make your bunny biscuits, open your first biscuit package and arrange them on a baking sheet, leaving plenty of room between each one.

3. Open your other package of biscuits and cut each one in half. Each half-biscuit will be one "ear." Attach two ears to each single biscuit to make your bunny head. Be sure they stick well so they won't come off-- I sometimes moisten the parts I'm trying to attach with a bit of milk.

4. Make a bunny face on each biscuit using raisins, dried cranberries, and slivered almonds.

5. Bake according to the package directions until golden and risen.

6. Combine honey and butter in a small bowl and brush your bunny biscuits lightly, being careful not to dislodge your bunnies' facial features!

7. Enjoy these fun Easter treats for kids for breakfast or as a snack with peanut butter and fruit! Or make them part of your Easter dinner menu!


Pear-fect Funny Bunny Salad

Adorable Pear Bunny Salad Kids Recipe for EasterConfused at the use of the phrase "Easter treats for kids" and salad in the same sentence? Well, this isn't a boring ol' grown-ups' salad. These adorable little pear bunnies are super cute, super easy to make, and really, really kid friendly. My suggestion? Prepare all the components ahead of time and let the kids assemble these all on their own. It's a ton of fun!

Got kids that gag at the very idea of cottage cheese? You can make your bunny tails from Cool Whip or a large marshmallow, too... just don't let it sit too long before serving.

Recipe serves 6.

Ingredients:
6 canned pear halves
12 raisins
3 maraschino cherries, halved
12 slivered almonds, for ears, OR
12 pieces of shaped carrot, for ears
Cottage cheese, as needed, for tails

Instructions: 1. Arrange the pears cut-side-down on a plate. You can either make a whole platter of bunny salads, or individual ones for each kid. But since they can't be moved after they're assembled, place them on their serving dishes now (I like to decorate mine with lettuce leaves).

2. Make two slits at the front of the narrow side of the pear to insert the eyes. Make two slits at the top to insert the ears.

3. Insert raisins for eyes and either shaped carrot pieces or slivered almonds (which are tasty but tend to look more like mice than rabbits) for ears. Add a halved cherry to the front of the pear for a nose.

4. Add a dollop of cottage cheese to the back end of the bunny for a tail.

5. Refrigerate these cute little Easter treats for kids until ready to serve.
